Homemade healthified Nutella
If there is one thing I have always LOVED to indulge in then it is Nutella!! It is sinfully delicious and you can pretty much add it to everything or just eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon..ahem not that it is something I have ever done ;)
However, it is sadly not exactly the healthiest thing to eat, so I have experimented with making my own healthified version and guysss (!!!) it turned out soo good! :D I am hooked! It is so delicious and actually really easy to make, so please give it a try – I promise you won’t regret it!
– Yields 1 jar
140 grams hazelnuts
½ deciliter (about 0.2 cup) + 2 tablespoons plantmilk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla powder
3 tablespoons pure maple sirup or acacia honey
2½ tablespoons raw cacao powder (regular is fine as well)
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Start by toasting the hazelnuts in the oven for 8-10 minutes on 350 f / 175 c. Simply place them on a tray lined with baking paper and toast them until the skin begins to crack. Let the hazelnuts cool a little before you peel the skin off – you can place them in a kitchen towel and use it to rub the peels off.
Place the toasted hazelnuts in a food processor and pulse until it has turned to nut butter – this usually takes 5-10 minutes. Make sure to scrape down the sides as needed.
Add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor – if you do not want it too sweet, then only add half of the sweetener to start with – and pulse until you have a smooth chocolate spread. Taste it and adjust the flavor to your liking – add more salt, sweetener, vanilla powder, cacao etc. if needed.
Pour it into a jar and it is ready to be served, enjoy!
